    Hi,

    My offside (RHD car) headlight is pushing the grill down when it is fully open. After removing the grill I could see the rubber bump stop that the bucket presses onto when it is open, has been split and worn down from being pushed into too far. I have replaced the bump stomp with a brand new one and the problem still persists.

    The arm on the bucket that rests on the bump is still continuing to push into the rubber before stopping.

    Is there a limiter with the motor that has failed or is not stopping the motor correctly or a mechanical adjustment to rectify this. Electrically the lights are working as they should.

    The rubber on the near side headlight is unmarked as the light stopping before it really pushes into it.

    Thanks,
    Phil

    There is a cam in there that is adjustable like a turnbuckle. I found it easier to remove the vents next to the assembly to adjust it.
